Thanks for your answer! I tried ethtool but without success. The
mii-tool doesn't seem to be delivered with Suse 9.2 and I can't find
the sources right now on the net. Here what I tried with ethtool:

linux3:~ # ethtool  -s eth0 speed 100 duplex full autoneg off
Cannot get current device settings: Operation not supported
  not setting speed
  not setting duplex
  not setting autoneg

linux3:~ # ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
        Supports Wake-on: g
        Wake-on: d
        Link detected: yes

So unfortunately ethtool doesn't seem to work properly for me at the

Thanks again,
